Testimonials from previous apprentices and interns at Schenker Ltd
"I’ve enjoyed my time at DB Schenker. There is a friendly atmosphere and if you have any questions, there’s always someone next to you ot with their door open for you.
I feel that I have had many options to further myself due to the many training options available to attend; many of these are techniques that can help in work and at home such as improving your computer skills. I’ve also been able to get a better scope of the whole company due to visiting other branches and working in different departments." (Kyle Windebank, 2010/2011)
"Since joining DB Schenker nine months ago, I have already travelled across the UK several times to other branches.
I was fortunate enough to go to the NEC for one of the biggest events in transport and logistics, Multimodal 2011. I didn't give a thought about this type of career at school but I couldn't be happier with the career that I am growing in to. In addition, I couldn't be happier with the company that I am employed by.
DB Schenker will give you opportunities that you should grab with both hands, and they invest in you through training courses and will give all the support you need. I am currently working with the production department having previously been on the customer service department. I have enjoyed working with both departments where I have come across a variety of challenges. My colleagues have been brilliant and have given me help when ever I have needed it. I am looking forward to the future, as I still have a numerous other departments to work on and more opportunities to grasp. Not only can you enjoy a professional career at DB Schenker, but also meet a variety of people and learn from their experiences." (Aiden Pearce, 2010/2011)
"I was very happy when my boss told me, that I could do an internship at DB Schenker Coventry at the time of my A-Level Exams. Working at Coventry was a very important learning process for my English language skills but also for my personality characteristics. DB Schenker is on one hand a very familiar company and on the other hand very fascinating.
The employees live for their work and the working environment is great. The people in Coventry always supported me if I needed help. At the end, I want to thank above all Carl Hobbis and the colleagues from Coventry for the great time and hope to meet them again in the future. Thank you very much again for the great time." (Stefan Nöhammer, Coventry 2010)
"I worked for DB Schenker UK in the Corp Head Office at Heathrow Airport from January to April 2011 as a Finance Intern.
In this time I learned some interesting things about investment requests and the strategy work at DB Schenker.
It was a unique opportunity to be a part of such a successful, international company. The decision to do this internship was one of the easiest and best I’ve ever made - not only because of the great experiences I’ve made here, but also because of the friendly and helpful people at this company... plus, London is a beautiful city!'' (Sandra Wolf, Heathrow 2011)
